Super Mario 3D All Stars debuts strongly in Japan and boosts Nintendo Switch sales

Super Mario 3D All-Stars is the third-best Super Mario release on Nintendo Switch in Japan, ahead of New Super Mario Bros. U or Mario Maker.

Like every week, we bring you the weekly sales data in Japan, offered by the Famitsu medium. This time, we talked about the days between September 14 and 20, which saw the launch of Super Mario 3D All-Stars on Switch, coinciding with the 35th anniversary of the Nintendo character.

The cartridge, which collects Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy, has debuted very strongly, selling 210,000 units (only sales in the physical format are counted).

This means that it is the third-best release of a Super Mario game for Nintendo Switch in Japan, behind Super Mario Odyssey (510,000) and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (366,000). This means it sold above New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe or Super Mario Maker 2.

In the UK, Mario’s also had one of the best releases in the history of the console, and the third-best of the year.

The top three are completed by the usual Ring Fit Adventure and Animal Crossing New Horizons, which alone approaches 6 million units sold a real outrage.
